The whole genre of Jazz has always been close to our hearts. After the success of JADE Ethnic Orchestra, we wanted to see if our approach to recording organic and raw performances would also yield the same outstanding results for a Studio Jazz and Pop Orchestra sound.
DIAMOND Jazz Orchestra is therefore the consequence of our “Ethnic Orchestra” and “Afflatus” Series combining both approaches and filling a big gap on the market of virtual instruments. We cannot wait to show you more of this collection in action, and if you can’t wait – why don’t you check out our DIAMOND Jazz Trio Freebie right now?!
One of the most requested features from our users has been consistency among the recorded articulations. DIAMOND not only has that; it also has more articulations than we have ever sampled before across the entire collection including multiple different lengths for short articulations (staccatissimo, staccato, marcato), but also different vibrato playing techniques and effects for maximum flexibility and realism when performing with the included instruments.
Of course, we also made sure to record the same articulations again with different mutes for the brass section and soloists and on top infused the true legato performances with our renowned Poylphonic True Legato from our Choirs and Afflatus: Strings.
The final result is a collection of virtual instruments not only suited for Jazz and Pop, but also for Orchestral arrangements within a less ambient setting.
